Postage Stamp Collage--- Margaret Thatcher our longest serving prime minister of recent times was the West's first female head of government. To her supporters, she was a revolutionary figure who transformed Britain's stagnant economy, tamed the unions and re-established the country as a world power. Others remember her 11-year premiership as a time of social unrest, industrial strife and high unemployment. Undoubtedly she will be remembered as a dominant political figure of 20th century Britain with her tough-talking rhetoric gaining her the nickname ‘The Iron Lady’. This portrait created from over 4000 postage stamps depicts her in reflective mood. At the bottom left hand corner of the picture is a voting cross which partially hides lighter toned stamps in the shape of a curve. This symbol graphically represents one of her better known phrases,” The Lady is not for turning”. Currently on display at ArtGallery's exhibition space at The Knapp Gallery, Regents College, Regents Park, London, NW1 4NS. Tel: 0844 879 7438
